Hi,i had a steelseries mouse which when inserted into port 1 was an extremely tight fit,while trying to make the fitting more loose i managed to break the xim4 port >:(.could i use a usb 2.0 hub in port 2 to bypass this?would the xim4 recognise a keyboard and mouse plugged into port 2?i dont have the funds to purchase an apex at the moment,any help would be greatly appreciated.

Yes, you can plug a standard USB 2.0 hub into your XIM4 to add more ports.

Ok so i got a usb 2.0 hub and used this to bypass my broken xim4 port,i managed to play last night for an hour with no problems,today i was playing for around half an hour when the xim4 completley died,i have tried various cables but the xim4 wont power on at all.i realised afterwards the usb hub should have its own power source which it didnt have,have i fried a circuit?
